The hotel is centrally located in the city of Arequipa with close proximity to all the sightseeings. The room set up was beautiful, super clean, comfortable beds and good Wi-Fi connection throughout the hotel. The Breakfast was good. The Hotel staff were absolutely super friendly and helpful. Natalie at the front desk was super attentive and provide us with a... More

Stayed several nights with a gap in between to tour the Colca Canyon. They stored our luggage securely for free. Also took the cooking class that's offered at the hotel and it was great once we got a small scheduling snafu settled. The garden area is really pretty and a nice respite from the surrounding city and there's a small... More

I stayed at Casa de Avila for three weeks in May 2015, learning Spanish for 4 hours in one-to-one lessons in the morning. First I was put into a room around the garden but was moved up to one floor the next morning. At first I was unhappy but then I was given discounts as a student. Paid around US$250... More

We were recommended Casa de Avila by a traveler in the Amazon (Bonanza tours is awesome). We highly recommend this place as well. We ended up taking two cooking classes, we loved making lomo saltado that we came back the next day to make macho fish in the garden as well. Friendly staff helped us to plan to do the... More

Simple clean room with a little TV, bathroom and hot water, and a slow wifi connection. Nice and friendly staff, and a large nice backyard. The breakfast wasn't okay, the bread/rolls were dry and hard, and the coffee strong and bitter.

Our recent trip to Peru was one full of "adventures". During our stay in Arequipa we had the pleasure of staying at Casa de Avila. Unfortunately for us this was during the recent protests which caused road closures and riots in the city. The hotel staff were absolutely wonderful from day 1 to when we left. We were greeted with... More

We really loved this place and stayed for three nights. The room was basic, but with the most comfortable bed, very clean and most importantly so quiet. The bathroom was very clean and we always had a hot water.Our favorite part was breakfast. It is serve in a beautiful garden full of flowers and humming birds. The breakfast is really... More

This was a great place to stay, the people were amazing! The food/breakfast (especially pancakes) was great. There is a nice open court yard to spend the mornings and the 50 year old turtle who likes to play with tourists feet was such a nice addition.

This is probably one of my favourite hotels in Peru. The large garden area is equipped with chairs and it's quiet inside the hotel area. Location is still central, just a few blocks away from the main plaza.
